Manson Shows Canceled, Huge Discount Mistake, and The Rev Immortal


Manson shows canceled

 

Just as Marilyn Manson was set to perform in Russia over the weekend, some joker called in a bomb threat, canceling that show … and then another show was pulled. Why? … Well, because it’s Marilyn Manson … that’s why! The first show, one of several planned for the Russian tour, was canceled because of the bomb threat. Police are still investigating. But Sunday’s show in a Russian town that I can’t pronounce was pulled because the religious orthodoxy there said Manson was only promoting sadomasochism. A promoter for the show told media outlets that officials from all levels denied permission for the concert to go on. One of Manson’s Tweets over the weekend asked “Why are the people that proclaim that music inspires violence, the ones that create such entropy?” That’s a great question! Despite the setbacks, Manson continues his overseas tour.

 

Huge discount mistake

 

Imagine expecting to spend gobs of money on a show featuring Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Faith No More, Motorhead, Soulfly, Wolfmother and others only to find out that your tickets only cost $4. 25. That’s what happened to thousands of fans who went to buy tickets to the British Summer Time show scheduled for July 4th. The show was actually supposed to sell for at least $85 USD but the press reports that a promoter’s email with a promotional code meant for a few special groups allowing for heavily discounted tickets went to the wrong people and buyers quickly scooped up the tickets. What’s even more awesome is the tickets sold at that deep discount will be honored.

 

The Rev immortal

 

And don’t believe everything you read online … except that Avenged Sevenfold’s Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan is immortal. That’s what his Wikipedia page said for a few hours late last week even though the drummer died back in 2009. The entry was eventually changed back to show he died December 28th, 2009.
